On April 24, 2013, a mere two days after the Supreme Court of India remarked that "even an animal won't do what the police officers are doing everyday in different parts of the country", three community members, including one woman, living in a slum cluster in West Delhi were brutally beaten by the Delhi police. Bite marks, a fractured foot, and, intensive chest beatings caused severe physical and emotional harm, with one of the victims Preeti, rendered temporarily unconscious, and suffering from seizures, shortness of breath, and intense chest pain several days after the incident.

In harrowing testimony, we hear directly from affected community members and activists from Nazdeek and World Faith India (HAQ) on the brutality of the Delhi police. Victims speak on the state of lawlessness within the police system, with officers routinely extorting money from community members, and resorting to violence to harass and intimidate innocent citizens, including women. This illegality persists despite a global outpouring of anger on the issue of violence against women in India, and existing laws and policies targeted to address police brutality and gender-based violence. As the heartbreaking stories from Baljeet Nagar reveal, the aftermath fails to add up.

The time is now. Please share this video and join the fight to end police brutality.

Together we'll be working with the Baljeet Nagar community to demand a more accountable, gender-sensitive police force.
